I don't play the games, I just paint for fun and display and like to make up backgrounds and create armies.

Now I want to build and paint a Hellknight Order...this is of course your fault!

"Good, I hope this recipe works out for you!  Be sure to show off those figures after you paint them.

I thought at first that Deep Amethyst would look too purple to appear "black", so I was going to use the Dark Elf Skin triad (purple-gray), but this looks good to me, especially next to the blue tabard/cloak.

I used the Dark Elf colors in the "silver" details and the "steel" halberd-blade." Derek

 

I like using the Dark Elf triad for highlighting black, especially boots and scabbards/sheaths. I'll have to give them a try for NMM now as well. 

I will for sure post them when they are completed! Thanks again @dks

Me too on the Dark Elf triad - that's my favorite highlight for black as well!

Overheard at ReaperCon 2018: "Why is Derek wearing that military helmet? Cosplay?"  "No, he's trying to keep Buglips from stealing his brain."

 

@Glitterwolf : I enjoyed inventing and painting my own Space Marine chapters, too.  The Pathfinder line has a few other official Hellknight figures, but of course you could create your own order with suitable paintjobs and/or conversions on any group of armored figures.  Sounds like a fun project!

Its hard to tell from the pictures, but would his mithril short sword be modeled on? I think i can see a hilt on his left hip between his wait and the cloth

      The new Kickstarter got me motivated to dig up some old bones. I realized after all these years I have never painted a dragon, so I got after it. Rather happy with how this came out.

      I wasn't sure if I should post this in Show off or WIP, but I figured here and if you would please forgive the in progress parts in the subsequent post.
       
      Ron let me paint this lovely sculpt by Gene Van Horne.  Actually, I think I might have begged to paint it and considered stealing it from his office if he refused.   She'll be in the Greek Odyssey Expansion for Bones V.  If by some miracle you have come to this forum and not heard of Bones V, it can be found here.  Aaron Lovejoy was awesome and took some high definition photos of her after last Reapercon.  
       





       
      I really love this sculpt, can't say that enough.  She's got some fantastic detail, lots of good open space to work on blending or freehand, even a scenic base to play with stone effects.  While I loved the original Yephima by Patrick Keith, and still use her in my classes, this one really screams warrior to me.  I need to paint my bones version when I get it as Athena. I'll have to add a shield somewhere, though. Maybe convert the club to a spear.  Decisions decisions.
       
      Anyway, feel free to ask questions.  I'm happy to explain or help with anything!  I'm going to post the WIP pictures I have in another post, so hopefully those will also be useful.  Enjoy!

      This is Barzillai Thrune, the major villain from the Pathfinder Hell's Rebels campaign. I painted him as a service to my DM because we are currently playing that campaign and my intuition tells me that it will be needed some day. The mini is extremely faithful to the original Wayne Reynolds art and I also used the same colour scheme, but I regret using my standard unimaginative "block of acryl paste" base. With the burning mace the mini would be excellent for OSL experiments and there are two fine versions of it on the forum with lighting effects, but I thought to late about the idea and was reluctant to add it to the almost finished mini.

      So here is my take on the famous Pathfinder Sorceress Seoni. I mostly kept to the original color scheme but wanted to find out how a green dress would look.

      I don't play Pathfinder but really liked the idea of Kul Inkit being a barbarian outfitted from a crashed spaceship. I tried to include spaceship grey and bright orange to suggest this.
